How we're organised

Inside Plough Lane Herefordshire Council offices

The Chief Executive of Herefordshire Council is Paul Walker, he is the senior officer who leads and takes responsibility for the work of all directly employed staff of the council.

The council consists of three directorates:

  • Adults and communities
  • Children and families
  • Economy and place

The council also operates a corporate centre covering HR, finance, legal, democratic services and corporate support services.

Together, these directorates and divisions help provide a wide range of services that combine to make a difference to Herefordshire residents' lives on a daily basis. These include education, social care, highways and transport, planning, culture, waste management, environmental health and trading standards.

You can find out more about each directorate.

Our ambitions are to:

  • Protect and enhance our environment and keep Herefordshire a great place to live
  • Strengthen communities to ensure everyone lives well and safely together
  • Support an economy which builds on the county's strengths and resources

When you join Herefordshire Council you can be part of this work to help and support our residents.
